Default Bar and Service Counter


Behind the counter is one of the most approachable people in Diagon Alley. Feel free to walk up to the counter and order anything off the menu.

When ordering at the Leaky Cauldron, Braylon will fill your order quickly. However, if you want to order food the wait may be slightly longer. So feel free to, after having placed your order, take a seat in any of the appropriate areas. Once your food is ready, it will be delivered to you.

Braylon has kept the menu widely the same since he took over the shop— however he does like to offer samples of new experimental recipes as they are available. Braylon has a fondness for the sweet stuff, and his specialty has always been double chocolate brownies which have been added to the menu. Sphinx Snacks are cookies that come with their own individual riddle. If you are finding yourself unable to answer the Riddle of the Sphinx Snack, just eat it and the answer will magically pop into your head. The Gingerbread Men are a lively bunch that will argue with you as to why they shouldn't be eaten, so do be careful when ordering them and make sure that they do not try to run away and fall off the counter. Braylon is not fond of picking up cookie men remains. Arguably the biggest hit with customers is the Dementor's Kiss Delight; a tooth-rottingly rich chocolate cake that comes with your choice of hot beverage for an additional 5 sickles.

The drinks have also stayed largely the same. Exploding Lemonade may be hazardous to your health and should be drunken with extreme caution. Vampire Venom is a drink not for the faint of heart and Braylon is not responsible for any fire breathing that may occur due to the intense spiciness of the drink. Perhaps what you may find the most shocking drink on the menu is not what it appears to be, but instead is a lovely blend of orange, snowberries, lychee, cranberry.

To order at the Leaky Cauldron, come up to the station and tell Braylon what you want. He will then calculate the appropriate price. Paying is key and mandatory, plus tips are always accepted.

Be mindful that certain beverages are only available to adult witches and wizards and there are NO exceptions to this.

Guests (names and ages of all others staying with you):
Date of Birth:
Address (town, country or just country):
Length of Stay (how many nights):
Pets (number and type(s) of pets staying with - 4 galleons per pet):

*** Other deals include dinner service and evening wine service. See Louisa for special pricing.
**** Prices include breakfast: unlimited toast with jam, two strips of bacon or sausage, and whatever fruit is in season with yogurt


OOC: This is for ordering drinks/food and talking with the barkeep. Just as in the other shops, have your character place their order. If it's food they desire, after paying the money, have them go sit in the dining area, otherwise, Braylon will get to them in order. You may also use this thread to RP as though your character is seated at the bar mingling with others.

This is also where the customers may reserve a room. Bear in mind, unless characters are staying with their parents, no one under the age of 16 may stay in the Leaky Cauldron. The price is fairly steep, so keep this in mind when trying to decide whether or not your character would stay.

Also, PLEASE do not play Braylon as this shop IS staffed. Just as you would not desire for us to play your character, we would rather you not play ours. Just be patient and you will be taken care of. Thank you VERY much in advance.

Ever had his hands in his pockets as he entered the leaky cauldron and slid into a seat at the bar. He wasn’t super jazzed at being here.. but since K was in town and Solana was at Mungos. He was in town. He was even taking a week off from his shows. Merlin knew he could use a break..

He looked at the menu, his blue eyes scanning it rather sightlessly as his mind whirled. His brain was racing a million miles an hour as he took a breath and tried to steady himself. A conversation with a barkeep shouldn’t be so hard..

Unless..

“So what’s good here.. Dad?” He called out as he put the menu down. His long fingers drumming on the bar as he waited.

SUMMER.

Personally, his FAVORITE time of the year! The England weather was more bearable, his younger children were out of school, his one friend free from teaching as well! It was a wonderful time of the year! And all of the bright smiling faces of the little ones who were filled with the excitement of their first year of school?! What a magical time to own a shop here! And to show just how elated he was with the whole energy of the street, he was humming as he cleaned some glasses - washing them thrice over to make sure they really shined.

He'd tried to order some new products, give something for parents to look forward to as well after the long days of fulfilling school shopping lists. And his mind was running through how to draw up his new advertisements when he could hear someone behind him. And not just anyone someone but... "Everest?!"

The ginger spun around, before throwing a bright smile at his eldest boy and moving closer to the counter. "Ever! Aren't you a sight for sore eyes! You didn't tell us you were coming for a visit?" The sentence started confident, but clearly became not so much. Had he just missed it? He pulled out one of the drink menus, passing it over and pointing at a couple. "You looking for sweet or bitter?"

Everest’s blue eyes looked up at his Father and he gave him a bit of a half smile. He nearly scoffed at how his father sounded excited and then wondered if he had missed something. He tried to keep the bitterness out of his tone as he tilted his head and adjusted himself on his seat.

“No, I didn’t say anything.” He confirmed. “I came back with K and my roommates, I didn’t think you’d want to see K.. so.” Now there was bitterness, the fact that his father didn’t like the most important person in his life was also a sore spot for him.

He took the menu, his eyes scanning over it.. “Bitter sounds good right now. ” He said as he handed the menu back..

His son confirming that they had not known he was coming was relief, only in the sense that he would have felt terrible if he'd forgotten. Braylon loved his kids, truly he did, but the man was so often scattered that things could go in one ear and out the other. He kept notebooks everywhere behind the counters and in his office to jot down thoughts for the business purposes. But perhaps he should have been doing similarly for each of the kids too. So he could remember and contribute more to conversations with them.

Although... apparently even when he did remember he didn't know how to contribute. Because the bitter remark about the girlfriend was entirely true. The ginger wouldn't have been outright RUDE if she'd come with his son but... there was still plenty of reasons to be leery of her. He was glad Everest was happy, he just worried too. "What are your room mates and.. K doing here in London?" Just summer holiday? Family?

Taking the menu back, Braylon busied himself by turning around to pour a newer inventory item for his son, placing the drink on the bar in front of him and turning to drop in some of his own coin to pay for it in order to balance out his inventory and sales at the end of the eve. "How are things in New York? How's your performances coming? I'm hoping there's more still so we can come out and see you as well."

Default First ever RP post! X3

Walking into the dimly, but cozily lit interior of the Leaky Cauldron, Iris let out a soft sigh. She had been in London for only three days, but Merlin, did it feel like a month! And the dreary London weather was certainly not helping! Definitely nothing compared to the eternal sunshine of Mexico. Besides, it wasn't as if she disliked being home...right? or maybe she did? All those dark and drafty manor rooms, and constantly sneering portraits of her ancestors...Maybe that was exactly it. Maybe she should get a room at the Leaky instead?

She was getting way too ahead of herself. She shook her head to clear her thoughts, brown eyes scanning the length of the bar as she pursed her lips thoughtfully. She should order, right? That would be the sane thing to do.

SPRING CLEANING.

Well, not really spring he supposed given it was October. But there was always so much updating to do once the little darlings had finished destroying his shop gone back to school. There were sticky surfaces to be wiped down everywhere, and a new summer menu to begin working on.

What would be something interesting? Perhaps he could do a customer poll on what they'd like to see added. Interactions with menus always brought people in wanting more! It's something he'd have to consider. For now, he had a customer!

Turning his attention to the woman as she entered, Bray gave a large smile and quickly finished wiping the bar down for her. "Hello, welcome to the Leaky Cauldron! What can I getcha?" He pulled out a menu and set it down at an open stool, so she had a reference point as well. "I've got some no-maj options and we just finished a new batch of butter beer that I must say is delicious." Cue chef's kiss.

Turning her head at the sound of the approaching bar keep, Iris grinned back, returning his smile. The Leaky Cauldron really was a nice place when the little gremlins weren't around for their school shopping.

Taking the menu that he had set down in front of her, she peered at thoughtfully before glancing back up at him with a chuckle "With such a glowing recommendation, I don't see any reason why I shouldn't order that apparently delicious butterbeer! " She then glanced back down at the menu and added "What sort of sandwich would go well with butterbeer?" Because she was absolutely starving, and at this rate, she could eat two sandwiches.

What TASTE this woman had! Her decision to order the butterbeer brought a giant smile to the burly red head's face as he turned to get that butterbeer for her. Extra foam in the LARGEST glass, because the extra mile always made a difference! Braylon filled the mug, before turning to place it back down on the bar in front of her. The question nearly made him panic.

A favorite sandwich!? How in the world could he pick just one!? That was like picking a favorite child! It was Eliza, but not by a lot. He admired the matched chaotic energy. "Well, they're all pretty delicious! But the avocado and sprouts is my usual go to. Avocado is a super food, did you know?" Did he currently remember exactly what that meant? No. But it was still important to mention. Just because.

Remembering his manners then, Braylon offered his hand to the patron in greeting. "My name's Braylon, by the way. Proud current proprietor of this fine establishment." Though he could take very little credit, as years of building up reputation had come from all the predecessors before him. "Pleasure to have you in today! What brings you to Diagon Alley?"

Honestly, she wasn't sure if she was in the mood for Butterbeer, alcohol in the middle of the day was not usually her style - but he seemed so excited for that batch of Butterbeer, and she wasn't about to disappoint him! Besides the look on his face totally made it worth it!

Taking a sip of the much-hyped up pint of butterbeer, her eyes widened at the taste - ok, it was actually really good. She took another sip before setting it back down on the bar - best to leave some for later.

"Huh, avocado sounds awesome actually!" Iris replied with a chuckle and a curious tilt of her head to the side "Is it really though? A super food I mean? I've never had avocado sandwich before" She usually ate it with quesadillas, that was basically the same thing, right?

"Pleasure to meet you Braylon!" Iris replied with a smile, reaching out to shake his hand "I'm Iris." She then shrugged and looked around "I'm not entirely sure, a bit of shopping I suppose." Truly she had just wanted to see Diagon Alley without having to push through crowds of students with their school supplies. "By the way, you wouldn't happen to have any rooms available upstairs would you?"

Was he entirely focused on seeing her reaction to the drink? Yes. He'd paused his search for his order pad and everything in order to see if she had any visible reaction, which she did and Eureka! It seemed she had liked it! Thankfully, considering he hated when he hyped something only for it to fall flat on what guests were expecting. "Decent, yeah?" He couldn't resist looking for the verbal confirmation as well.

Aha, there was his notepad! Which was good, considering she had decided to go with his suggestion there as well. He scribbled it down, pausing as he did so, "Want to add any meat to it as well? The avocado sprout is more of our vegetarian option, but it's pretty delicious still with some turkey or ham added as well." Unless she preferred just the veggies. When she questioned on the super food part, he nearly blanched, silently cursing himself for mentioning it when he could not remember more to back his claim. There was a small pause, before something DID come to mind. "It's something to do with it being really jam packing with nutrients. Delicious AND very healthy." What more could someone want?

Large beam her way at the introduction, as he gave her hand a firm shake. "Pleasure to meet you as well, Iris! Shopping once it's quiet after the kids all head back and before the holiday rush is always pleasant." Maybe not always, supposed it depended on if you could find the exact products you were looking for. But still, the quiet was something to be appreciated. "Rooms you say? I do, in fact!" He took a step back from the bar to point at the copy of the application hanging there for reference. "I just need one of these guys filled out in order to get you all squared away with one. Want me to grab you one and a pen?"

Iris drank another generous gulp of the cold Butterbeer before nodding her head enthusiastically. "Definitely more than decent! This is quality Butterbeer!" She took a napkin off the bar, and wiped the corner of her lips "I wager, maybe the best Butterbeer I have had in a long time!"

She took another gulp, depleting her pint to almost half - should she order more with her sandwich?

The woman nodded her head at Braylon's suggestion to add meat into her sandwich "Ham sounds amazing actually" She replied with a laugh "Honestly, I trust you judgement, go crazy on it.

As their conversation shifted to the rooms that she would need, her head followed in the direction that he point to, gesturing at the forms. "Its alright, I can manage." With a swish and a flick, she wordlessly summoned a sheet of the said form to her spot, and rummaged out a pen from her purse.

She then handed over her form with a smile "Do you need the payment upfront, or upon check out?"


He was preening at the praise, his smile large as well, though also trying to keep it cool by responding with a simple "Thank you!"

He scribbled ham down on his notepad, before glancing up at her and raising an eyebrow when she gave permission to 'go crazy'. Trusting his judgement was a bold move, when he was a man that enjoyed experimenting with bold flavors. But the permission had been given and he would be running with it. He flipped his notepad closed, no longer having any necessity for that. "One Sawyer special sandwich and another pint of butterbeer coming right up!"

He made to move but paused, waiting to make sure she didn't have any questions about lodging or the needed form, but she was already on it so he just smiled and disappeared into the kitchen while Iris worked on that. He decided on his way that he should play it safer to start, not adding anything out of ordinary for this one. So bread, a heaping amount of avocado, ham, sprouts, little bit of mayo and mustard, onion, tomato and pickles. Normally he'd throw some chips - the American type - on top for crunch too, but the sprouts provided that experience. So instead he just plated it, adding a heap of fresh fries and brought it back from the kitchen for her. "Nothing too crazy, but it's got some more toppings than we normally put. If you hate it, let me know and I'll whip you up a different one."

He accepted the application, filing it safely away in his binder before moving for her drink. "We generally like to charge up front, and I'll refund you whatever needed if your plans change." No need to charge her for the whole time if she didn't use it.

Grabbing a fresh chilled glass, Bray began to fill it again, keeping his eye on the rising foam. "So you're not local then? What brings you to our neck of the woods?"

Another Friday had rolled around and Wallace found himself in the same spot as he did every other Friday. By the time Wallace got out of the office it was well into the evening. His stomach growled as he took a spot at the bar and waited for Braylon to get to him.

Surveying the healthy group of people he could see, the Leaky was doing alright for a Friday. Wallace grinned to himself, the Leaky felt like home.

"Hey, Braylon. Give me the usual Friday order." He smiled at the barkeep. "Fish and chips and a Butterbeer." Wallace rarely changed his order, not because he was dull but because fish and chips used to be Margie and his Friday dinner for years. "No rush." Wallace added on, waving at Braylon to take care of the other patrons.

Carefully, Wallace counted out the right amount of money and placed it on the bar top before turning to find a suitable seat for the evening.

In the recent months, the Leaky Cauldron proprietor had managed to become rather subdued. At least... as subdued as Braylon Sawyer could probably get. And he found he was rather glad for business and hustle and bustle of a Friday night. Kept him distracted. But what he liked even more than just a busy Friday? Regulars. Regulars were easy to talk to, and they were fun. Besides, what business owner didn't like having repeat customers?

Glancing up hearing his name, the red haired man gave a wave of his hand. "Hidey ho, Wallace! Glad to see you made it in!" He finished up serving the patron in front of him, a rather tasty looking sandwich and a firewhiskey, before heading towards the kitchen to grab fish and chips and a butter beer. He kept one eye opened to watch where Wallace might settle, so that he could deliver his food once done.

Lucky for Mr. Crum, he'd just put in a fresh batch of chips. The cream of the crop.

London was ... well, it was London. Jordan had been aimlessly wandering around for hours, trying to figure out where that damn entrance was to the wizarding alley. Needless to say, he had finally arrived, and he managed to see some touristy sights along the way. Whether or not he was impressed by the city was yet to be determined.

But, as he stepped inside what was a popular pub around these parts, he did have to admit it was cozy. It was significantly warmer inside the pub than it was outside, and the eighteen-year-old was rather eager to not have to haul his rugsack on his back anymore. His dark brown eyes scanned the area before he decided to start at the most logical place: the bar.

"Hey," he addressed the ginger dude who he assumed was the barman. "So, uhh, what's good here?"

Back to his spot behind the bar, Braylon Sawyer was working on cleaning up the counter again with a quick sanitary wipe down. Something he still liked to do the muggle when, when time permitted. He was currently putting the old elbow grease into a spot of dried fudge, when he heard someone address him and ginger haired head popped up to see who it was.

Unfamiliar face. So someone NEW. New was good!

Hearing the question, Bray laid his rag down on the spot - best to let it soak anyways - and spun around to grab a menu and present it to the young man. "that depends what you are looking for! We've got plenty of options. The sandwiches are satisfying, the veela haired pasta is so good it'll have you tongue tied," true to it's name, "or the shepherds pie lately has been a favorite of mine." So much layered goodness.

And if it was dessert the gent wanted, well Bray could go on for even longer on THAT subject. Sweets were his kryptonite.

As the ginger dude spoke, the American plopped his rug sack on the floor with a surprisingly loud thud (mainly so he could slip out of his jacket before he overheated, secondly to give his shoulders a break) and glanced at the menu that was offered. At first he scanned the entire thinking, looking for something cheap, though he was happy to find that everything was reasonably priced -- these definitely were not New York prices.

"I'll give the veela-haired pasta a try," he said, digging in his pockets for coin. He set what all he had on the counter and started sorting everything, which mostly contained of Dragots and Sprinks with a few Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts sprinkled in here and there.

Jordan moved the required Galleons and Sickles forward. "And I'll have a Butterbeer with that too," he continued as he placed another gold coin in front of him and swept the rest back in his pocket.

"You have rooms in this place, right?" The question was an afterthought, but it was necessary. He didn't, after all, have a place to go to as he was, for lack of a better phrase, fresh off the boat. "New to the country," he explained before he was asked, "so I'll need a temporary thing."

"One veela haired pasta, coming right up!" Braylon noted it on his pad of paper, before passing the note off to an employee for them to get the pasta ready. Bray noticed the coins the gentleman was carrying, and between currency and accent.. "Are you also from the States?" It had been about 4 years since his family had relocated across the pond, but his own accent was something that could not be shaken. Not that he wanted to. "Where about?"

Hearing the request for a butterbeer as well, the ginger haired man grabbed an empty mug and began to fill it from the tap. Maximum amount of liquid, with the most delicious looking layer of foam covering the top. Mmm. Presenting the drink, Bray also scooped the coins to deposit them into the till, making quick note of what was already paid in case refund or additions were needed later. "Thank you, sir."

Ahh, would need lodging to then? That just solidified his theory about the young man. Nodding at the question, an application was grabbed and presented as well. "We do! Just ask this be filled out with some info. How long you needing something for? We have our pricing listed for discount for two weeks, but if you need a longer amount of time we can figure something out for a bit more of a discounted rate." He had no necessity or desire to truly empty people's pockets. Perhaps this made him a bad business man.

A brow rose ever-so-slightly at the sight of the man writing down his order and passing it on. The whole situation was very old fashioned, and Jordan really had to force himself to not comment about it. He wasn't really there to engage in such small talk. All he wanted was food and a place to stay that was low-key. The rest he would figure out later.

But, of course, small talk was inevitable, wasn't it? "Yeah," he replied with a bit of a nod. "New York. From the Bronx." He wasn't entirely sure what prompted him to provide that last piece of information, so he fell silent and watch the ginger man take the coins and hand over the drink, which the young adult did not hesitate to take and press to his lips.

The drink was set down, making a light thudding noise on the counter. It was much lighter than the internal thud he felt at seeing the room prices. "Umm, not sure," he eventually told the man. "Haven't exactly got a living situation figured out yet." Nor did he have a job secured, but that detail he omitted.

"But, uhh, I'll just go fill this out over there," Jordan added, nodding his head in the direction of a nearby table. He needed a moment to figure things out.

Brrrrrr.

Merlin, was it cold. Perhaps locals wouldn't mind it as much as she did, but having relocated from much, much warmer places, Ava felt as though her limbs had frozen off. Always on the move and travelling light, she'd have to keep in mind to expand her wardrobe, and Theo's too, in this attempt of theirs to settle down in one place.

With her chin buried in her turtleneck sweater, Ava pulled the coat that was too light for her liking tighter around herself, and headed straight to the bar, taking a seat at the very end where she used to sit with Isaac whenever they came to London. Without even noticing, her hand strayed to her chest where the golden ring hung on a thin necklace beneath her sweater, the familiar feeling of it warming her up a little.

It's been years since she'd last dropped by the Leaky Cauldron, so she took her time to scan for the small changes that have been made from her last visit. She was content doing that until the bartender noticed her.

Anashti l Brat Pack l Sally & Dr. Finklestein

Early December was generally Braylon's favorite time of the year. Pumpkin pies, warm butter beer, sugar cookies, oh my! This year the ginger haired man was a little more somber than most, but still determined to try to paste a happy smile on his face and make it the best season possible for his patrons.

Which was why he was currently decking the place out to the nines with garlands, holly and tinsel. He'd considered mistletoe, but that seemed rather unprofessional and potentially awkward (for him) given how often his children visited with their friends. No father wanted to see their small ones kissing someone. So instead, he had a box of those to the side for special requests by lodgers in case they wanted it for their own holiday spirit sake.

Turning his head, he happened to catch a glimpse of someone at the bar and Braylon hurried finished hanging the last of his snowflakes he'd created earlier. "Be right with you!" Satisfied it was in place, he holstered his wand and grabbed a menu to place in front of the woman. "Sorry about that. Welcome! What can I get for you?"

Ava quickly shook her head with a smile when the bartender apologized. "You've got a good eye for decor," she said instead, looking back appreciatively at all the garlands and snowflakes he'd hung up. It made the place feel even more welcoming. Maybe it was the festive spirit that was missing at home, so she took a mental note to buy some more No-Maj decorations on her way back to hang up with Theo later.

Undecided about what to order off the menu, half to herself and half to the bartender, she said, "What's a strong drink that would still leave me coherent..?" So what if it was... probably not even lunch time... perhaps brunch time at best... She had to purse her lips to keep herself from grinning, because it all seemed infinitely ridiculous to her. It's been a few years since she's gone to a pub at all, and likely decades since she's gone on her own. But, as per her son's instructions, she would try to loosen up a little.

At the compliment, Bray turned a critical eye to survey the pub, giving a small nod in agreement once he'd decided it didn't look too TOO bad. "You don't think it's too much?" He might have gone a little tinsel heavy. And he still had more he could hang if he wanted too. Perhaps he'd save it and go and decorate the halls upstairs and some of the empty rooms in case they got rented prior to the holiday.

Anywho.

Hearing the question, Braylon considered the menu for a moment before turning to pour a small sample of a new mead he'd recently acquired, coming back and placing it in front of her. "Try that one! It's a newer brand and pretty smooth. One of those and you'd be fine. Might I recommend fri- er.. chips to go with?" He was still getting used to the different terminology for his favorite American foods. Chips still made him think of a bag of potato chips, 'crisps' here he supposed, and fries were fries. But... when in Rome.

Too much? Ava offered a light shrug. "There's no such thing as too much when you're decorating for the holidays." But if it was, then she might as well change her name to Ava Too-Much Lockett. Maybe it was the fact that she moved around so often and rarely had the opportunity to settle down and celebrate a holiday properly that made her go wild on the rare occasions that she did decorate. Even then, with the limited amount of magic that she used at home, she liked to do it the No-Maj way with her son, and the No-Maj... they sure liked to go big on Christmas shopping sprees, and she was likely influenced by their antics.

Ava took a sip of the drink she's been offered, hoping that the slightest scrunch of her nose went unnoticed at the burn she wasn't used to feeling. "Mmmm." It tasted horrible. She loved it. "This will do!" She did, however, notice a slip of the tongue right there. Her eyes glinting with curiosity, she said, "Fries would be great, thank you," which translated to, I'm curious if you're a fellow American, but I'm too shy ask.

She was far better at socializing with dragons, really.
